WOYWW 175 - The Big Crop Week....

Woooooooooo...... it's here.....  The Big WOYWW Crop.  Can you imagine a 40 year old woman running around her lounge with her t-shirt pulled up over her head like an over-excited footballer?  No?  Me either.... LOL.... but that's about how excited I am.  I have Doone and Jozart coming to stay which is a scary prospect.  No, that sounds wrong.  It's a daunting prospect, as they are both such amazingly creative people..... will I measure up?  LOL.  I have a secret weapon or two, in the vague shapes of Mr B and Hamish.... hehehehe....


Anyway, you're no doubt here to see my desk, not read my witterings, so without further ado....

Ta dah!


One desk.  Not looking an awful lot different to last week, but I can assure you that Stuff has happened.  And also not happened.  The domino I was working on last week hasn't actually been finished yet, though it will by Saturday.  Providing my screw-eyes turn up.  Funny how you don't always know what you need until the very last minute.

See, we have a finished Christmas card!  I took Janet's recommendation to put in some dark card, and also surmised that I did NOT like the medallion in a base of white, so did it in cream instead.  Added some distress ink to...um...distress it a bit...  and there you have it.



It's also Mr & Mrs B Senior's wedding anniversary this week, so I took advantage of the current Sketch Saturday sketch to make them a card.  Here is the card and there are just a few more deets here.

The quantity of crocheted squares is gradually increasing.  I'm hoping to add a few more colours at some point!  That green, whilst pretty, is a bit dull...


And that's your lot for this week.  By the time we do all this again, we will have had The Crop and eaten lots of yummy things like this....

  

See you in a comments box (or a village hall!) near you....

You will love Jo and Donna and the three of you will sit up and chat and chat and chat.
Lots of loveliness on your desk this week, the cake looks yummy, the cards are gorgeous and bet the dom is too when it is finished.
Have a wonderful weekend.

You certainly have had a busy week Morty and an even busier one coming up by the sounds of things.
I’m so envious that you are all getting to meet up and would have loved to be there if I wasn’t way down in the South East but you never know, maybe next time. I’m sure you will all have fun.

Happy Crafting!
Sue

Hi Morti. Love your workspace and that Christmas card is lovely. I am trying to crochet am baby blanket but not having much success. It keeps turning out like a hat, I just can't keep it flat.
maybe I should just make squares ?

have a fun time with your crafty friends and eat lots of cake

Well if that goey, yummy thing is going to the crop we will have to beat WOYWWers off with a stick. Bring it on.
Like how you finished the card and your super tidy, organised desk.
See you sat

Hope you saved me some cake Morti!! I'm here late enough that you'll all be back from the crop.... or down the pub!!! Hope it all went well, I've just been bugging Julia on FB for an update!! Sad or what! Love the clean desk, hope the guests were impressed. Also love the card, mounting on red was just perfect.

Lpovely to see you yesterday, Cindy

JoZart said...

Can't find your email so I'm going to brazenly gush here for the whole World to know about your super hospitality (apologies if they now all want the experience)....Thanks first and foremost to you three as such lovely welcoming people, to your cuddly furry babes (and the amazing scaled Vince). The good food, fun, and the experience of staying in your beautiful thatched house, was the icing on all the cake we stuffed.
